Add Dimension to your Embroidery

You can add dimension to your embroidery, instead of using just one thread at a time, try using two Contrasting threads together, you will need to use a large eye needle like Superior Topstitch Titanium needle. Place both spools together on your thread stand and thread your machine once then go back and thread it again. Be sure to reduce the speed of your machine to a minimum, this technique is not for very dense or small embroidery designs. You may need to adjust the top tension, sew out a few stitches, and make your adjustments to achieve great results. You can archive a variegated thread look to your embroidery while being able to customize any color combination you need with out getting a striped look.
